Upwork is one of, if not the largest freelance sites. With over 12 million registered users offering their skills and services. The website offers a large amount of exposure and access to a huge database of freelancers.
With Upwork, you would post a job proposal and let freelancers apply to that proposal. On average, you’d get 30-50 job proposals. You would go through all of them and apply a few people to see who you like. There are a few issues with this, it’s a long process and takes time away from you that may be vital.
